Famous quotes containing the word deaths:

    On almost the incendiary eve
    Of deaths and entrances ...
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    You lived too long, we have supped full with heroes,
    they waste their deaths on us.
    C.D. Andrews (1913–1992)

    There is the guilt all soldiers feel for having broken the taboo against killing, a guilt as old as war itself. Add to this the soldier’s sense of shame for having fought in actions that resulted, indirectly or directly, in the deaths of civilians. Then pile on top of that an attitude of social opprobrium, an attitude that made the fighting man feel personally morally responsible for the war, and you get your proverbial walking time bomb.
    Philip Caputo (b. 1941)
